Applicants must be registered as full- or part-time students. Applications, including full details of the venue, topic and costs of the conference and its relevance to the applicant’s interests, together with the name of a referee, should be submitted in writing by 1 June or 1 December to the Secretary of the MSRG:Dr Susan Kilby
